Drill Press Upgrade - Part 7 Sliding doors and slide ways

The sliding doors are made from some 1/4" birch plywood cut to size. I also glued some thin hardwood finger rails onto each side. This has the benefit of preventing much wood dust falling through the gap and enables fingers to push or pull the doors open or closed.

The slide ways were made on the router from some hardwood scraps.

They are designed so the slide ways simply are glued to the sides.

As can be seen in this view the doors actually protrude beyond the top of the carcass.
This is by design as the door top rail is a slot in the underside of the storage cabinet top
After the slideways were glued the cubby/carcass and slideway fabrication was sanded and finished with General Finishes Exterior 450.

The cabinet top is the next item to be made.
